What's so ironiclastic about model Andrej Pejic effectively modeling Dutch company Hema's mega push up bra for their winter fashion line?
Well, she's a dude, for one...
Andrej Pejic is a successful male model from Yugoslavia that fled the country with his mother when he was eight and moved to Australia as a refugee of the Bosnian war. He is known for his extreme androgyny and his ability to successfully model both men and women's clothing.
Gender bending aside, at first, I thought it was silly for him to model a push up bra, but then it occurred to me -- this guy has no tits and this mega push up bra gave him more than an adequate rack. Just think what it can do for women!
By and large, the fashion world has embraced his unique look. He's worked often enough that you might have seen his modeling spreads without realizing that she was actually a he.
It kind of reminded me of the ad campaign for American Beauty. It was a sexy closeup of a female belly button being caressed gently by delicate fingers. The caption simply read, "Look closer."
|Look closer, at my tiny hands..|
